Mastercam’s Cview Utility Tips
Did you know that you can use the Cview utility to automatically set machining planes for mill/turn operations? After loading a lathe machine definition, select Mill > Cview utility from the Toolpaths menu. Select your application type and enter an optional C-axis position, and Mastercam will automatically calculate the proper tool and construction planes. You can also preview the tool orientation with the new planes to make sure it is what you expect.
